Did He Say Mama?

Between 9 and 11 months, many babies begin mixing consonant and vowel sounds, stringing them together in long songs: “Ba-ba-ba-ba! Da-da-da! Ma-ma-ma!”

Your enthusiastic response to “Ma-ma” and “Da-da” encourages your baby to repeat those sounds and helps to give them meaning.

“Bye-bye” is another sound babies this age quickly connect to meaning, along with a wave.
